How Low Will Vista Prices Go?

Microsoft announced it was lowering Windows Vista prices last Thursday. While the price cuts aren't scheduled to go into effect until the release of Service Pack 1 (SP1), Microsoft had said that many retailers would be offering promotions that would drop Vista to its new lower prices.

But the ad at OfficeMax took things a step further. In this week's circular, the office products chain is selling Windows Vista Home Premium for $99. That's $30 less than Microsoft's just-lowered price and the same as the suggested price for Windows Vista Home Basic--though perhaps just a hair more than the clearance prices a couple weeks back at closing CompUSA stores.

The question now is just how low will Vista go.

If you look at, the price is even cheaper, at $94.99 - and no sales tax.
